Who needs the awards red carpet? There are plenty of events for celebs to attend. Lucky for us…
Winner: Rachel Bilson. I applaud both for pulling their hair back to expose the amazing neckline of the dress and showing off their shoulders, but the color is better with Rachel’s skin tone. I also prefer her black shoes to Tory’s (wait, not Reva’s?). Why isn’t Tory Burch wearing her own line anyway (yes, it was a Chanel event)?
Winner: Amanda Bynes. I don’t understand why Paris feels the need to pair every dress she wears with dark opaque tights. I mean she lives in L.A. If I lived there I would never wear the damn things again! Nothing beats a bare leg (as long as they are good). I also love Amanda’s Loubies! We just hope she didn’t get this dress illegally.
Eva Mendes vs Bonnie Somerville in Dolce & Gabbana
Winner: Eva Mendes. OK, Eva Mendes wins almost all the time because she looks fab in pretty much everything. If I were a red carpet celeb I would check to see that every dress I was about to wear was never seen previously on Eva Mendes. Seriously. This dress is no exception. It’s a tough color to pull off and while it looks great on Bonnie too, Eva’s skin tone is a better compliment. It pops on her whereas it blends with Bonnie’s skin and hair.
Christy Turlington vs Diane Kruger in Chanel
Winner: Christy Turlington. Diane lost me with the shoes. I am not one to say shoes should match the bag. In fact, I’m over it. However, their should be some correlation and there is none. Also Diane looks a little ghostly in the dress, but I do like her hair style.
Winner: I am going with Lucy Liu. One, the color totally pops on her. Two, I love the belt with the dress which plays up the amazing drapping detail. Three, the length is better above the knee on Lucy and mid-calf on Sienna which is never a good place to be. The dress looks like a sac on Sienna. She either needed another size or a tailor.
